Toro Rosso have unveiled their 2019 Formula 1 vehicle, saying it owes a lot to last year's Red Bull.
The junior Red Bull squad finished ninth in the championship past year, ahead of only the struggling Williams outfit.
What's changed at Toro Rosso?
The most visible changes to the vehicle from last year's are those mandated by 2019's new technical regulations, including a wider, simplified front wing, smaller barge boards and a higher, wider rear wing.
By the end of this week nine of F1's 10 teams will have either revealed their all-new auto in full, or their 2019 livery, ahead of the start of winter testing at Barcelona next Monday.
The new vehicle features the wider front and rear wings that have been mandated this season by F1's rule-makers in an attempt to make the racing closer by allowing cars to follow each other more easily. However, the sidepod inlets have also been revised from last year's STR13 and now follow the design trend led by Ferrari in recent years.
"I enjoyed my time working with Ferrari, which helped me keep in good shape and in touch with what is going on in Formula 1 on the technical front", said Kvyat, who tested Toro Rosso's 2018 vehicle during the post-race Abu Dhabi test. "I strongly believe he deserves another chance in Formula 1". They know what they're doing.
The Red Bull junior team endured one of their worst seasons in F1 past year, finishing ninth and only ahead of Williams after an inconsistent start to life with Honda engines.
In 2019 Toro Rosso will share closer technical ties with the primary Red Bull team, with the two not only sharing Honda's engine package but also gearboxes, rear suspension and some front suspension parts as well as some electronic and hydraulic components. "I just want to get in the vehicle and see what happens".
Albon, who finished second in Formula 2 a year ago, added: "In general, the way I've gone about my career and my racing, is I never set any goals on anything". Just take it as it is. "I'm just focused on myself and let's see how it all goes".
